Trey’s Valentine's Day Special! 

Hello, music lovers! 

Wether you love it, hate it or just plain ‘meh’ it, Valentine’s came and went in a flurry of rose petals and sloppy displays of public affection. 

Personally, we at team Trey love it! Any excuse for a bit of romance – as Trey’s tunes will attest. 

Meanwhile, we offered our own spin on this thing called lurve, by way of 3 fab new songs. You can catch them all on YouTube. 

  • BEFORE YOU FORGET ME – the heartbreaking song Trey penned this time last year, that inspired the INTIMATE…

Something wicked this way comes... New BIG ASS Tune Drops on Valentine's Day! 

Anyone who's seen Trey play his rock music set will remember this eerily passionate tune replete with creepy lyrics.

Well, now you gets to hear the song come to life via the studio, via a nasty garage whence it was recorded. But which tune will it be?

The week after this drops, another garage demo goes live on YouTube + Facebook + IGTV. Here's the social media handles, should you want to hear Uber-catchy rock songs crackling with Trey's vim and wit.

THE MAGUS – now on YouTube! 

Hello Music Lovers! 

This week’s cut is THE MAGUS, and it is indeed a deep cut. When we say ‘deep’, we mean deep. Like when Rutger Hauer furrows his brow at the end of Blade Runner. Yup! THAT deep. 

THE MAGUS was inspired reading John Fowles’ book of the same name, set in the 1950s on a remote Greek island. Trey (ahem!) borrows from a passage in it, as Fowles could write landscapes in a way lost by writers today. You can feel the lizard heat baked through the soles of your shoes on a cold November night…

Besame mucho – Trey

Tro-lololololololo-ling! Part Un! 

Still in Steely Dan mode, and that epic lyric, 'Even Cathy Berberian knows, there's one roulade+ she can't sing'.

Cathy might have been cast in A Clockwork Orange as that poor woman murdered by an unwieldy lingam. Trey says that she is one of a kind – that she bridges the classical and (then) pop world, and manages to take the piss out of both. Meanwhile, striking that sonorous discordant note between pastiche and respect. Well, credit where credit is due.

Happily, the interwebs are a cornucopia of…

Walter Becker – So Long Bodhisattva 

It’s been a few weeks since half of Steely Dan, the oft overshadowed Walter Becker, met his reward. In between closing on the end of Night For Day, we wanted to think awhile and raise a glass to what Steel Dan mean to us, here at Power’s Towers. 
 

As any major dude will tell you, when it comes to jazz rocketry, no one gets near Messrs Becker and Fagan for elegant disdain and booze addled sophistry.* Very few of their tunes are campfire songs, for you need nippy fingers to get some of those chords in, and…
